    Which Troy BUIS with eotech EXPS2

    ACR is still on order but should have this weekend.

    I already have an Eotech EXPS2 for it... (thanks AMEX points). What TROY iron sights will work best with this setup, the micro or standard battle sights? I tried the eotech on my AR with Magpul BUIS and the Eotech is very high so they are very low in the window. Will either of the Troy models co-witness closer to the center of the window?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for all the great info so far.

    Because the EXPS sits on a 7mm riser, it will only work with the standard Troy's and will give you a lower 1/3 co-witness. The micros are too short and will not co-witness at all. If you had the XPS, (doesn't have the built in riser) The standard Troys give ya an absolute co-witness, (center of viewing area) and the micros give you a lower 1/3.

    Maybe I should have gotten the XPS. Standard with lower 1/3 will have to do.
    Thank you very much for the reply.

    Wow, I'm that I didn't buy the EXPS now. I never noticed that. Once you said that the EXPS sat on a 7mm riser I went and looked and it was clearly obvious. Buying an EXPS would've cost me a good deal more than just the extra cash for the EOTech. I feel that much better about being cheap and getting the XPS now!

    Its a trade off i guess. I only went with the EXPS because of the buttons on the side. A friend has the XPS and the buttons on the back with magnifier are a PIA. BUT at this point I wish I went with XPS. Trying to figure out now how to return. Used AMEX points with Amazon but sold through Optics Planet so a bit of a mess. Hopefully Amazon is good about it and credits back my points.
